The Bamenda Regional Hospital over the weekend received some materials to help helth workers who are tackling the outbreak of the COVID-19.
The materials comprised of protective gears were donated by the Sisterspeak237 to help the health workers as they go about their work.
“We are here to appreciate the health workers are at the frontline to save our lives at a very great cost and risk and we think this little support can motivate them and boost their efforts,” Cynthia Wanchia, Project Lead of Sisterspeak237 said.
Receiving the gifts on Thursday, the Director of the Bamenda Regional Hospital Denis Nsame said the equipment will go a long way to facilitate their work given that the situation is becoming complex as days go by.
He said health workers who are at the forefront of the fight are exposed and remain at risk thus such equipment are always a boost in their daily activities.
He revealed that 25.000 persons have so far been screened across the North West Region and nobody has tested positive so far.
On her part, the founder of Sister237, Comfort Mussa said they equally want to understand the needs as well as untold stories in the frenzy of the outbreak of the pandemic.
She said they can fill the information gap from the perspective of people that are overlooked during such situations notably, notably, women, children and persons with disabilities.
“We are equally working on inclusive sensitization materials on Covid-19 and preparedness,” she added.
